Artemus C. Baker, who fell from a ladder a week ago and was seriously injured, died at his home on Elm street yesterday morning at 4 o'clock.

Mr. Baker was born at Brattleboro and had been a resident of Rutland since 1865. He joined the 16th Vermont regiment in 1862 and served through the war. He was in Libby prison three months. After the war he came to Rutland, and married Anne E. Haley April 4, 1869. He was the father of four children, two daughters, Phila R. and Dora A. Baker, and two sons, Edwin C. and Frank C. Baker, all of whom, with the widow, survive him.

The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock.
